Nov 23 (9am - 4pm) Retreat for Council and any other members who would like to attend. Elizabeth Guss, an experienced church retreat leader, will facilitate a day-long retreat at our church. The purpose of the retreat is to draft a vision of who we are and where we want to be in our future. Elizabeth would like to have 10 - 15 participants to get a broader perspective from our congregation. Council members plan to attend, and we also welcome other members and friends of FCC who would like to attend. Anyone attending the retreat will be provided with 5- 6 questions to answer and bring to the retreat. We also ask that you are able to attend the entire retreat (9am - 4pm) to provide continuity of conversation. Coffee, tea, water, and lunch will be provided during the retreat. Please let Wendy Haupt know if you are planning to attend so that we have an accurate count to order food for lunch.
Hanging of the Greens Hanging of the Greens will take place Saturday, November 30th from 9:00 - Noon. This is an all-church activity to make the sanctuary beautiful prior to the first Sunday in Advent. Your reward will be coffee, doughnuts, the fellowship of working together, and the satisfaction of creating an uplifting space for worship in December.
In case you haven’t seen it ... Friendship Manor and First Congregational Church are mentioned in the 3rd paragraph of a Salt Lake Tribune news article: http://www.sltrib.com/news/2017/11/15/50-years-later-friendship-manor-remains-a-monument-to-how-faith-groups-can-work-together-to-serve-utahs-elderly/ (or click on the button below) 50 years later, Friendship Manor remains a monument to how faith groups can work together to serve Utah’s elderly. It was a 1961 chat between a Unitarian minister and a Westminster College professor that proved the genesis for Salt Lake City’s Friendship Manor retirement community.
